I'm not sure if Steve  remembers this section, but looking back (to last 
year) it is one of the longest sections without road access.  Stehekin, of 
course, is only accessible by ferry or sea plane, nearly a 100 trail miles 
from Stevens Pass.  Rainy Pass, although only 20 trail miles, is many miles 
via roads, back over the chain from Stehekin.  You'll probably beat the car 

There are a number of spur trails off the PCT, prior to Stehekin, listed in 
the data book, although I have no idea where they lead, you could probably be 
resupplied using them.  If I was going to be in the area, I'd do it for you.

Best of hikes,  Sly
